At Coupe Green, we believe strongly in linking learning to real-world experiences and recognise the positive impact these experiences can have on our pupils’ understanding. We place a high priority on providing a broad range of educational opportunities for all our pupils including educational visits, sporting opportunities and theme days to enrich curriculum learning. We recognise that these opportunities are invaluable to all our children, including those who are disadvantaged, and ensure that all children are included in our curriculum enrichment provision.
Most recently, educational visits have taken place to: –
Bring Yer Wellies
Brockholes Nature Reserve
The Museum of Lancashire
Masjid e Salaam in Preston
We also invite a broad range of visitors into our school to talk to children about their experiences or give a real-life perspective on learning. These have included: –
- A World War Two evacuee
- The Queen’s Deputy Lord Lieutenant for Lancashire
- The Royal British Legion
- Religious leaders
- Members of the emergency services
- Author visits
As well as providing opportunities for educational visits and welcoming visitors into school, we also organise regular theme days or weeks. These provide an opportunity to come together as a whole school and deepen learning on a particular theme as well as celebrate pupils’ learning. Most recently we have held theme days for Eid and the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee as well as a whole school art week.
We also provide a broad range of extra-curricular activities offered by staff, the local sports partnership or other external agencies. In almost all cases, these are offered at no extra cost to parents to ensure all children who wish to participate can do so. We aim to provide a balance of new and traditional activities to broaden our pupils’ experiences and allow them to develop new skills. Most recently, we have run extra-curricular activities in; fencing, cheerleading, choir, dance, football, drama, athletics, curling, dodgeball, music tuition and multi-skills.
